INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich announced that center Javon Patterson will miss the entire season after suffering a torn ACL.

Patterson was a seventh-round draft pick, No. 246 overall, out of Ole Miss.

The Colts expected Patterson to add depth to an offensive line that returns all five starters from a group that allowed a league-low 18 sacks in 2018. Patterson signed his rookie contract May 3.

Reich also said quarterback Andrew Luck will miss his third week of offseason workouts because of a strained calf.

Reich would not say Tuesday whether Luck will return for next week's three-day minicamp.

Reich has said the Colts are playing it safe. He has said Luck would practice and play if the injury had occurred during the regular season.
